Man, Machine, and God – Ignatius Forum

Wednesday, November 16, 2022 | 7:00pm

With the very fast acceleration of artificial intelligence, we are approaching what may be an inflection point in human history—the moment when A.I. is so advanced that it is impossible to know whether you are talking in a chat, say, with a human or a computer.
Before we take this next step in human-machine evolution, we need to think very carefully. Henry Kissinger, among others, has asked – Is the Age of Artificial Intelligence the end of the Age of Reason? These issues in technology may sound recondite, but they go to the heart of what it is to be “human.” What are the essential values that should guide our human interaction with each other, the planet, and the infinity beyond?
Join Washington National Cathedral for the 2022 Ignatius Forum. Dean Randy Hollerith, David Ignatius of the Washington Post, and The Hon. Amy Ignatius host this year’s Ignatius Forum. Speakers for the evening include:
The Honorable Henry Kissinger, Former U.S. Secretary of State
